This is the front of the book box. It measures 4.5" wide by 5.0" high. The cover is cut 5" x 10" and scored at 4.5" from each end giving you a 1" section in the center. I used SU! pink pirouette for this cover.
Tilda is stamped with Memento tuxedo black on PTI select white CS and colored with Copics. The green mat piece is from CTMH olive CS. DP is from Making Memories "Dilly Dally" line.
I kept the front rather plain firstly because of the size, and I wanted to keep the focus on this cutie-pie Tilda, that of course, I got from Diana's Magnolia-licious online store! I tell ya, she's the sweetest Lady and her service is always fast. Click on her store icon on my sidebar to get there to order your stamps!
This is the inside. I didn't take a good shot to show the "book" part but it is about 1" deep. I used my new heart "Doily Dies" from Cheery Lynn Designs that my sister got for me and just love all the cut out hearts! The butterfly in the "book window" is from a stamp set from Prickley Pear, and has a matching butterfly die that was gifted to me from a dear friend, Linda (thank you Linda!). The flourish die-cut on the front and on the bottom of the heart is from my Nellie Snellen die.
I also needed a "thank you" note card and again used this Tilda with Hawaii flower since I couldn't stop playing with her!
The "envelope" is die-cut from a "Treat Bag" by Lifestyle Crafts which I believe is a line from QuicKutz. I had to keep my "note" flat to fit in it so again, it's not embellished with flowers and trim so it would fit.
Well, that's all I have to share today.
Tomorrow I will share with you some awesome calendar pages I received from the super talented Tammi. Her work is incredible and you will see it all tomorrow.
Thank you for taking the time to stop by today. Have a wonderful week and happy crafting!
